FEM has added the Vollrath Mirage Induction Drop-In Rethermaliser to the range of products it supplies.
The appliance is said to be a safer and more efficient way to heat and serve food, as it doesn’t require water for heating.
The Mirage Rethermaliser uses induction heating technology to retherm food quickly and precisely, and is designed to eliminate overheating.
The 800W, 3D induction coil is claimed to heat food evenly and efficiently, with precise temperature control, taking the 10.4litre capacity inset filled with products such as soup, chilli or macaroni cheese from a chilled state (below 4.4°C) through the HACCP “danger zone” to 73.9°C in less than 90 minutes.
Three sensors have direct contact with the induction-ready inset to provide temperature control. Once the desired temperature is reached, holding the temperature is said to consume less than 180W. The sensors also measure the differences in food temperatures, alerting the user when it is time to stir the product by illuminating the stir indicator.
The LED display shows temperature, three preset programmes for soup, chilli or macaroni cheese, pre-programmed rethermalise mode and stirring indicator. A locking function prevents untrained users from adjusting the settings.
The Rethermalisers come with an induction-ready inset and a slotted, hinged cover. Additional inserts and covers are available from FEM. The list price for the Silver Drop-In Rethermaliser is £595+VAT and includes a 1 year warranty.
